General info: 

Bar Urca has marvelous view to the Guanabara Bay and excellent fish and seafood dishes. The restaurant might be quite full on Fridays Saturdays and Sundays but if you have the change to dine here, we recommend it.

If the restaurant has no tables available it is common to buy your drinks and finger food at the counter on the ground floor, and take them to the low wall by the promenade across the street, where you can also sit and eat. If you eat inside, make sure you have a window view.

Getting there: 

Address: Rua Candido Gaffree 205


Prices are a bit higher than in basic Rio restaurants. (Range 11-14€) That might be compensated by the view and athmosphere though. Also, you can take some small fingerfood instead of a full dish.
